Police department's accreditation in question ????
Can we bring back Chief Stanley??? When he first came to town he completely rebuilt the department and was so aggressive with Grants, community programs, crime prevention, and equipment. He was extremely transparent and always communicated with the public. He single handedly converted a outdated department to a state of the art law Enforcement Agency. Since he left almost everything he had accomplished has been undone and we are now going backwards again. The Department leadership is non existent and I am told things have never been worse. We have multiple disputes and complaints by officers against the Chief, including one that has required a special investigation to be conducted. There are multiple officers out on Administrative Leave, many unfilled positions, Accreditation not kept up to date and in jeopardy of being lost after a huge financial investment from the town. Grants have been lost for not being filed properly or timely, including one very important grant that would have provided Narcan kits in all the cruisers to help fight the horrible drug problem that is killing so many people. All these issues are being shielded from the public and we all need to get involved and demand transparency on what is going on within the department. It seems to me that it is a runaway train and nobody is paying attention.
